Burchell's Sandgrouse

Written by Neil Gray
1st May 2007  Paid a very quick visit to the exploration site in the Hotazel area, arriving 4pm yesterday and leaving 10am this morning. Managed to time my drive past the the main waterhole this morning very well. At 09:45 in came +/-40 Burchell's Sandgrouse for their morning drink - joining a solitary pair of Namaqua Sandgrouse that were already there.

One pair, quite uncharacteristically (as my previous experience in this area is that they are very skittish) walked towards my bakkie getting to within 10m, affording me my best shots yet of this species.
